“There seems to be a lot of excess flesh,” one of the surgeons remarked. Then she and the other surgeon…
BEGAN FLINGING THE RAW CHICKEN SKINS INTO THE AUDIENCE!
I can still remember the horrified look of a girl on the front row as a chicken skin splatted across her knee. (Is “splatted” a word? I’m not sure. Let’s get on with the story).
That was the last story in the newscast. I am shocked that we were not severely punished for these shenanigans of a most unsanitary and insulting nature.
And do you know what?
I THINK THE WHOLE THING WAS MY IDEA!
Those of you who know me are appalled right now. How could I, miss propriety and a card-carrying member of “Germophobes R Us,” ever have come up with such a wretched idea?
I don’t know. And I plead the 5th. And I blame everybody for not stopping me.
This is my advice for you. Don’t EVER throw chicken skins, under ANY circumstance. Especially not when there are teenage girls around.
Eat smores instead! (I bet you were wondering how I was going to work in the smores angle 🙂
Smores are the quintessential camping treat. Actually, the only camping treat, unless you count those ill-fated Dutch oven desserts which always seem to burn on the bottom and not get done in the middle.
But you really can’t go wrong with smores. Even if your marshmallow catches on fire, it is still good to eat.
So if you want to have the feeling of camping without actually going camping (and because you also want to avoid fire and outhouses) then this Smores Ice Cream is perfect for you!
Graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallow fluff, all mixed into a classic vanilla ice cream. No chicken skins in sight.
- 1 cup whole milk
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 3 graham crackers, broken into medium-sized pieces
- 1/2 cup marshmallow creme
- 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 tsp. coconut oil
- In a large bowl, mix whole milk and sugar together until sugar is dissolved.
- Add the whipping cream and vanilla and mix well.
- Pour into your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's directions.
- While the ice cream is churning, melt the chocolate chips along with the coconut oil in a small pan over low heat on the stove. After melted, set aside to cool slightly.
- When ice cream is done churning transfer to an airtight container, layering with the graham cracker pieces, marshmallow creme, and drizzling each layer with the melted chocolate.
- Freeze for several hours or overnight.
